Abstract Polymer matrix composites have established themselves in the materials family due to their improved properties like high specific stiffness and strength, durability etc. Recycled polyethylene terephthalate (RPET) is being used as matrix material in a variety of polymer matrix composites. Composite materials based on RPET matrix, in addition to being cost effective, are also environment friendly. Use of RPET as matrix material not only reduces the consumption of virgin materials, but it ...

In this paper, agar/gelatin and acrylic acid-co-vinyl acetate (monomer chains) based superabsorbent, fabricated using gamma radiations as an initiator and N-N′ dimethylene bisacrylamide as a crosslinker, has been investigated for its swelling behaviour (Max. Ps = 8010) in distilled water as a function of time, temperature and pH. The hydrogel has further been applied for sustained delivery of diethyl carbamazine citrate under three pH conditions at 37 °C. It has been found to show non-Fickian ty...

In the present study, the dialdehyde carboxymethyl cellulose (DCMC) was cross-linked covalently to gelatin via the Schiff base reaction to form a three-dimensional hydrogel (DCMC-cl-G). The crosslinking degree of DCMC and gelatin was estimated to be 50.31 ± 2.65. The maximum swelling capacity of the hydrogel in aqueous medium was around 74 g/g at pH 10.0 and 37 °C with equilibrium swelling attained in three hours and the compressive strength of the hydrogel was found to be 55 ± 0.76 kPa at 60% s...

The article is related to sunlight and UV-visible mineralization of harmful magenta-O (FB) dye. The nanocomposite used is a cross linked network of acrylic acid synthesized inside poly(acrylamide) grafted Guggul gum in the presence of UV-visible respondent bismuth ferrite nanoparticles. The synthesis of poly(acrylamide) grafted Guggul gum (Sample I) and synthesizing a crosslinked network inside it (Sample II) involved a two-step synthesis for optimizing various reaction parameters. The maximum %...

Abstract In this work, we developed a green strategy for the fabrication of bio-based gelatin/dextrin semi-interpenetrating network (Gel-dex-cl-polyAAm) and carbon quantum dots (CQDs) nanocomposite (CQDs/Gel-dex-cl-polyAAm) for the detection of tannic acid and removal of eosin yellow dye present in water sample. The synthesis of semi-interpenetrating network (semi-IPN) was done under hot air reaction conditions using acrylamide and N,N′-methylenbisacrylamide monomer-crosslinker system. The maxim...

Abstract This paper introduces a novel approach for the fabrication of antibacterial silver nanocomposite scaffolds using the plant gum exudate of Boswellia serrate. The fabrication of the nanocomposites was done through the formation of semi-IPN (Bs-cl-polyAAm-Gm) and IPN (Bs-cl-polyAAm-IPN-AA-Gm) matrices under the impact of high energy γ-radiations. The γ-radiations induced in-situ reduction of Ag+ ions into Ag0 nanoparticles also limits the use of chemical reducing agents and adds novelty to...
